Desert Botanical Garden (Phoenix) by An Pham


Home to young and young-at-heart alike, this town in the northwest corner of metropolitan Phoenix prides itself on community.

Right Now

Youngtown has gotten younger, and better, with age. Once mainly a retirement community – the oldest retirement community in the U.S. – Youngtown is now attracting young families too. And it’s no wonder, with its comfortable lifestyle and convenient access to all that Greater Phoenix has to offer. A welcoming community, the town is embracing this new wave of residents.

Within town, residents and visitors take advantage of the town’s lake, seven parks, and charming town center, known as the Clubhouse Square. Plus clubs, organizations, and regular special events make Youngtown a great place to be. Luke Air Force Base, located on the western side of Youngtown, is a tremendous source of patriotic pride for residents. Marvel as fighter jets zoom overhead in formation.

Outside of town limits, zip across the waters of nearby Lake Pleasant, where many outfitters offer boat rentals as well as chartered cruises. Take a trip north on Interstate 17 to the Bradshaw Mountains, where you can follow trails amid pretty mountain scenery that lead to the remnants of ancient American Indian communities and old mining towns.
